Bundeswehr-Luftsportring Laupheim e.V. was operating a Lancair ES with 3 people aboard, flying out of Laupheim Airport in Germany when it crashed at Heimertingen near Oberopfingen.

Three men——two Bavarians and a man from Baden Wurttenberg——were killed in the crash near the Bavarian border. The pilot was one of the Bavarians, and the flight was a training flight to learn new technology.

An eye-witness called in the report of a small crash around 4pm. Rescue workers found the crash site in Biberach district in a wooded area between Highway 7 and Oberopfingen near the Bavarian border.

No cause has been determined for the crash.
